We should feel sorrow, but not sink under its oppression.
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.
While you are not able to serve men, how can you serve spirits [of the dead]?…While you do not know life, how can you know about death? What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter.
